Brass not worth picking up?!

Since retirement last year I have so much time that I started going around picking up brass at known shooting areas. After I had accumulated 100+ pounds I looked around to try and sell it. The local guy offered 50 cents a pound! It has to be worth more than that? If not it is not worth picking it up....

I pick up brass when I need something to do. It takes time to pick it up, time to size it, clean it, inspect it and sort it.

If I was closer I would pick some up just to keep me busy. But then I remember actually walking away from brass on the ground last time at the range.

Even if its not worth it monetary , picking up the brass goes a long way into cleaning up a shooting area.
That's worth something right there.

What's wrong with being a environmental friendly person?
Besides picking up brass , goes a long way in making shooters look a little better to the general public.

Who I vote for has nothing to do with my conduct or behavior on the shooting line....

I just sold a bucket of damaged brass and spent primers(they are brass too) at snitzers here in Eugene. Got 1.30/lb today. Once I get my business set up I'd be willing to pay 1.50/lb and come and get it. I should be good to go in a month I hope.
